  • Brent Archinal
  • Jay Laura
  • Marc Hunter
  • Julie Stopar
  • Laz Kestay


  • Updates on action items

    • Lunar geoid came in. Jay might make a geoid and release as ARD.
    • Fundamental difference is ~400m. What is the change in gravity? Someone can do that stuff if they want.
    • Have more products.
  • Data providers/data producers discussion. Roles and responsibilities. Staging for outreach - the goal is to have 2+ data products being promoted by the Lunar SDI this FY (as that is very concrete).

    • Goal: Release 2 producers that are not produced by the USGS and provide under the LSDI standards.
      • How?
        • What products are important to release - a list.
        • Can we use the foundational data product inventory as a starting point?
        • Can not ask someone to reprocess an existing data set. Don’t see a problem asking a producer to rework if the time ask is small, reasonable, and agreeable.
        • What already meets the standards?
    • See action items / homework.
    • Present this work - what are these compliant data sets.
  • LSSW, key takeaways/presentation

  • PA/ME discussions

    • NASA is doing stuff and will have a position at some point.
    • After that, other agencies will deconflict as needed.
    • We just wait.
    • NASA will discuss this process at the LSSW we think.
  • NGA geoid - as it informs ocentric vs. ographic discussion (if needed)

  • Action Items

    • Jay: Share a spreadsheet with everyone with products from FDP
    • All: Pick one product and compare to the LSDI standards. What is good? What needs an update?
